Local faith communities will hold a special collection for Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 1, to raise funds for the homeless and others in crisis.
The campaign, called “Souper Bowl of Caring,” is a national effort designed to help alleviate hunger and poverty and educate young people about those less fortunate than themselves. Participating churches and synagogues engage adults and young people in sharing the message of charity to others.
Participating faith communities sometimes use big soup kettles labeled “Souper Bowl of Caring” to make their collection before, during and/or after services on Super Bowl Sunday, or choose other collection containers.
Some faith communities invite young and older congregants to wear the jerseys of their favorite teams to services on “Souper Bowl of Caring” Sunday as an incentive to remember to bring money for the collection. Other churches encourage donations by having activities and items for purchase.
Donations should be sent to Grassroots, Souper Bowl of Caring, 6700 Freetown Road, Columbia, MD, 21044.
